Steve was just cut. With the injuries at guard is he still an option to play in our offense? I forgot why we let him go?

i think we cut him cuz he's old and slow. i don't see them bringing anyone back. should we suffer another injury at the guard position then we'll bring in someone but i don't see it being someone older and slower.

No, he was signed by the Dolphins.


Edit: Nevermind,he was released today by the Dolphins.

I'm sure Rick Smith has his agent's number in his database, but I don't think the Texans are ready to pick up the phone yet.

Even though I see the possibility of McKinney backing up at both C and G for cheap.

He was very effective last year before his injury. Considering that we just lost Weary, I think it's worth it to get him back.

IF he's battle ready then do it. If not, forget it, we have enough banged up recruits as it is.

Well, let's see. He's healthier than Green and probably quicker than Brown. :sarcasm:

I can answer that in one word ..... No



I think he may catch on somewhere but it wont be here .

The only place the Great American is going to catch on is at Velocity, Freebirds, and a deer stand outside of Centerville.

Kubiak let him go early (right after OTAs, I think) because he knew McKinney wouldn't be effective in the ZBS - especially at his age after a knee injury - so he let him "test the waters" to see if he could get work elsewhere.

I was sad to see him go because he's good people. But sentimentality won't get us in the playoffs; upgrading our roster will.

Good luck, Steve.

Only if we're looking at him playing Guard again. Even then I think the guys we have in the wings have more upside then Steve.

No thanks to him but hope he catches on elsewhere.

I believe weary is on the preseason IR not the season IR, Kubiak even said "we still have a couple a weeks" wich leads me to believe the decision has still not been made on weary.

Just say no to McKinney. Let him go the the Giants and hang out with his boy Carr.
